|Believe me- I won't be buying from any pet shops anytime soon. I haven't since I heard of puppy mills. My dog Cinnamon came from a pet shop, though. And, with research, I found out she's probably a puppy mill puppy. Though she's healthy as a horse- I've heard one of her brothers weren't so lucky. When you live in a small town, sometimes it's easy to find people.
Anyway, that's what I was afraid of hearing- but, it's better to be aware of them than unaware. At least when you're aware you can inform other people and be careful where you buy.
I, personally, will be rescuing my next cat. She'll be a chinchilla persian preferbally 2 or 3 years old. The only reason I'll buy any pets in the future will be for show purposes. I find it hard to trust almost any breeder.
I mean, I've even heard of AKC breeders lying and getting around things. In fact, there was one that lived around here that sold "teacup" and "tiny toy" chihuahuas. It was crazy.
